New traditions and other things.

I have been so ready for Christmas for about 3 months,so, as you can imagine, I have been very busy covering my house in silver and purple, and scouring Pinterest for ideas. There is a pile of wrapped presents under the tree and a pile of wrapped books ready to be read each night of December. But in-between trips to the cheap shop, there's been time for blowing puffballs, growing watermelons and visits to the waterpark…

Eden is scared of those fountains- she loves splashing in the puddles, but as soon as the fountains fire up, she's outta there!

Her silly face- has a silly voice to go with it:)

Im very excited about this Christmas. I’m planning a whole lot of new traditions, Our Elf has arrived {Noel- pronounced Nole, because Cara wondered why we had a decoration for Noel when we dont even KNOW anyone called Noel} and the kids each have a small tree of their own in their rooms.

This time of the year is so special to me. I know it should be stressful , and it is, but it reminds me of when I was little  and every morning is so very frustratingly exciting knowing that its getting closer and closer .

The kids are almost finished school for the year, and Luka is off to Prep next week for move-on day {all the kids move up to the next class for the day} which is sure to make me weepy.

They’re best friend, those two. Eden is going to be lost next year.

{note- there is no-one at the waterpark because I’m nuts and turn up at 8:26am to avoid crowds- my catchphrase has changed from ‘ Where's Luka!!!’ to “Eden! Get back here! Stay where i can see you!’ and she's so tiny she's hard to spot in a crowd}

Ill be back with some Christmas prep photos soon, right now i have cookies to make with my Fatboy, who is sadly no longer the Fatboy, still not Luka though, its Louie or Lugala now.
